~ The Gifts that Keep on Giving ~

I am still living Christmas.  I have not had a moment to journal about all the beautiful gifts of love that the Christmas Season brings.  
The Gifts of Love that keep on Giving!

I used one of my Christmas Gifts this morning, and I just had to share...

My Butterfly gifted me with so many wonderful tokens of charity and affection. 

~*~ Twelve Cooked Meals ~*~
~*~ Twenty-Four Cups of Hot Tea ~*~
~*~ Ten Bed Makings ~*~
~*~ Four Dog Washings ~*~

And if that wasn't enough LOVE, my sister in law made this absolutely beautiful Treasure and Memory Box for the family.

On the exterior, a collage of pictures of Christmas' Past.
In the interior are cards to Create Written Memories for each Christmas.

This has love written all over it...literally.

I am feeling overwhelmingly blessed these days and I am so thankful to God for all the blessings in my life.  My husband, my children, my family and my friends.  But I know that it is my Faith that brings me the most joy, and with the knowledge that I am loved bounteously by He that has made me.  He is the most perfect Gift, that gives - continuously.


"If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in him and he in God.  And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love.
Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him...There is no fear in love."
~ 1 John 4:15-16


  1. Four Dog Washings - this must be the best Christmas gift ever.

    When we wash our dog there's water everywhere, a totally dry dog, and a very wet family. Do they sell Dog Washings Gift Cards?

    God bless, and Happy Christmas again and again.

    1. Yes; we now have a dog wash area in our local pet supply shop. The shop supplies the towels, shampoo, and rubber aprons...genius. One can walk away from the water mess and hairy towels.

      A Joyful Christmas to you!
